Naturehoods are catching on in the United Kingdom, Canada, Europe, and the USA. These programs aim to bring nature closer to home. Whether you live in an apartment or on a large parcel of land, you can bring nature closer to home by what you plant. For apartment dwellers, create a natural setting on your balcony by planting a garden pot with a selection of native plants. Those of you fortunate to live with some land around your dwelling can plant shrubs and trees that attract native species of insects and birds. Encouraging neighbours to join you will expand the Naturehood for all to enjoy. Learn the names of the plants and animals that share your space.
